Course Code: 7007

Instructor: Dr. Sabri Elkrghli


This is an advanced course in operations research (OR). The primary emphasis will be on Linear Programming (LP) and its applications (covering the formulation of a number of different types of linear models, the simplex algorithm, duality, and sensitivity analysis, and the transportation and assignment problems). Other areas such as integer programming, network flows, nonlinear and dynamic programming will also be covered, with the amount of emphasis depending on the time available. The course will divide into Seven Chapters. The tentative order of topics is as follows: modeling with linear programs and solving with a computer, simplex algorithm to solve linear program, duality, sensitivity analysis, transportation, assignment and transshipment problems, integer programming, network models, dynamic and nonlinear programming (if time permits). Lab and Exercise-based approach will be used in this course.
